Abstract: Conventional wisdom of the crowd often cites the pains and woes of animals being grossly mistreated by humans. Therefore, there exist many proponents, both professional and amateur, that support the advocation of greater animal rights. This paper seeks to flip this paradigm. Following from the analysis of famous animal rights philosophers such as Peter Singer and Immanuel Kant, this essay aims to break down conventional arguments for animal rights and show how our morality is compromised if we choose to afford animals with rights. At the end of the evaluation, this paper maintains that human nature disallows us from affording animals with rights, but that this conclusion does not preclude humans from treating animals better.
